Slovak Trip Report : Slovak Diesels

This report covers a long overdue return to Slovakia after an absence of eight years. Most of the major diesel worked lines were visited including the northern end of the Prievidza - Nove Zamky line, the extensive network of lines around Zvolen and Banska Bystrica, the routes east to Kosice and Margecany and the Humenne - Presov and Humenne - Banovce lines.

Slovak Pictures Added - May 2003

It's only taken 4 years to get these shots up on the website! They cover the electrified east-west main line in the area around Strba, where the line runs close to the High Tatra mountains, the electrified lines to the Ukrainian border east of Kosice, including the 5' gauge line, and the diesel worked lines north and east of Presov.

Slovak Photos - Zvolen in May 2003

The lines around Zvolen and Banska Bystrica in south-central Slovakia provide the photographer with plenty of scenic locations, a high proportion of loco hauled passenger trains and some freight workings. In spite of the recent introduction of modern class 840 railcars and the beginning of electrification work on the line between Zvolen and Banska, there's still a lot to see and photograph. These pictures were taken during May 2003.
